Welp I think I might have to stop playing Borderlands 2

I'm at the point where I am unable to solo missions and even side quests without dying a very large quantity of times, which isn't fun. I'm overleveled yet enemies still kill me [b][u]a lot[/u][/b] faster than I can kill them. I get the game is designed for co-op but I really don't like playing with other people. Even if I wanted to (which I do now cuz I can't progress solo without losing all my money to deaths), none of my friends play the game and randoms rarely matchmake with me even though I set matchmaking to public. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted. At least it took me longer to quit this game than the last new game I tried; Borderlands 2 lasted me like 30 hours while R6 Siege lasted me like 3. It's a good game, but I just don't think I can play it anymore.

    I'm an average game player and have been able to solo BL2, pre-sequel and BL1....wth are you doing wrong?? Maybe you are over leveled, but what about your gear? If your gear is underleveled, that could be the problem. Edit: didn't see your update until after I wrote this, hope its getting better for ya. You only get stronger as you level, so keep it up.

      An update on my progress: the game is fun again now, mostly. I’m on the mission “The Talon of God”, which I’m pretty sure is the last mission in the main story. I have a legendary adaptive shield with a low capacity but a shitton of elemental resistance and it gives me like 1.5k extra health. I leveled Zer0 more and I’m finally at the point where if I melee something it just dies in addition to having B0re, which is nice. My damage output is existent now, especially at close range. Despite that, I try to straight up charge enemies less and I’ve reduced my reliance on shotguns in an effort to play more conservatively. It works. Though I still have trouble with some enemies, particularly Threshers and Crystalisks. Those still don’t die (well, the smaller Threshers do but not the other ones). Crystalisks in particular are annoying as hell; usually I just run past them instead of trying to fight because they’re just stupid. Thanks to everyone that offered tips and advice to me (except that one guy that said just said “git gud”; there’s always that one guy and they’re never helpful). Though I still can’t get Golden Keys to work, which is kind of annoying. I’ll just make due though.

    • All the new opulescent guns suck, the only shield that you can use is the bee shield and it needs to be op10. Most guns suck now. Op8 was when things were simple.

        • I have no idea why you would be taking so much damage. The only time your shields should be going down so fast is if your shield sucks or if you are fighting higher levels. Borderlands 2 is actually one of the easiest shooter looters out there. Does your should take away some HP? I hate those shields.

        • Okay, I’m gonna tell you to get the Bee shield, the most broken shield in the whole game. Good news, if you’re up to farm, it’s easy to get. Bad news, you’re gonna have to touch the Tiny Tina dlc, which has major spoilers. What you do is go through the campaign until you get to the forest, and farm the treants. Eventually you’ll get a shield that adds a flat out damage bonus to each projectile fired by your guns, it’s amazing but broken as hell. It’s the only way I could complete UVHM.

            If you have solid guns and use the right elements, you should be able to tear through things, especially in normal mode. Since you're playing Zer0, you might want to change your playstyle up a bit, given his fairly niche skill trees. If you can push through all the way to Many Must Fall, you'll be golden. If you're having trouble with constructors, you might want to spec into b0re, and practice hitting their weak spot with it. Also, a note, since you mentioned getting instantly killed. You can't get instakilled in this game. It's literally impossible so long as your health is above 50%. If you have access to a Moxxi weapon, any healing skills, or transfusion grenades, use them to make sure your health stays above 50%. Also, if Zer0 [i]really[/i] isn't working for you, you could always just start over and try a different character. Salvador is easy-mode, and Maya has great mobbing skills from the get go.

              Honestly, it sounds like you're playing it wrong. No seriously. Enemies scale to you, unless it's something like Terrormorphous or something like that. What level are you? What character? What perks are you running on your 'super'? (sorry, don't know what else to call it) Are you leveling up your perks on your baddass points? Are you using guns, shields, grenades, mods, that are up to your level? Are you upgrading you backpack size, number of guns you can run, ammo and grenades you can carry? Do you know how to do this? Are you using the elemental guns and grenades to their strengths on enemies weak to them? Are you alternating slag to the element that hurts that enemy? Do you have a high powered sniper rifle? (does not mean elemental, just high alpha) Or are you just trying to Rambo your way through the game and not playing conservatively when it is necessary? It really isn't a difficult game, unless you're impatient or you are trying to over use things that you should have either put in your vault or dropped. Also, I saw posts about Gold Keys. If you have a facebook or twtiier account, they give out Gold Key codes on there weekly. Sign up, collect the keys, but USE THEM SPARINGLY if you are low level. The Gold Chests give out great gear, but it is at the level you are at. Once you level past it, they're worthless. Save the keys for when you are nearly maxed out. I had like 78 or something when I came back to the DLC. Since beating it, I opened the chest about 45 times and got some really awesome things, and gave many to my son because I didn't or couldn't keep or use them all. The ones neither wanted, we sold to the vending machines for more money.

              • Are you using elements properly? Corrosive on yellow health, electric on shields and fire on flesh?

                  • If you get the right loadouts, you should be able to solo all the way through UVHM.
